Are there step-by-step instructions somewhere for doing a dist-

I'll be glad to RTFM if somebody can point me to the right FM...
Simple go through your sources file and change etch to lenny. Then do
a apt-get update then run apt-get dist-upgrade
Worked like a charm for me.
No need to first manually upgrade Perl or apt?
Why not just the dist-upgrade?
Because "update" tells apt about all the new packages.
Sorry :-( I misread "upgrade" for "update"...
I was kinda wondering why you asked such an elementary question.
I am wondering why you are wondering :-)
Because he's been on this list for a long time, andshould know better.
I'm asking my self how to migrate from sarge to lenny?
Migrate first to Etch!!!
Is it more complicated question, that deserves attention?
I was also thinking to ask here, but then ... I decided not because it's
elementary ... still asking is good approach for exchanging experience.
There are some questions that only a newbie should ask.
There are some questions that should only be asked after Googling,
because they've probably been asked before.
I was thinking to make a copy of the system and try system upgrade
(apt-get ...), test and see what happens. This is preferred because it's a
server. If it does not work, I would install and migrate the services,
which makes also sense, because I can document some things in parallel. The
second approach is still more time consuming.
